New forum software.

So ive been contemplating on our forum. At the moment. Everything we post Forumotion owns. Which is BS.

What does everyone think of restarting the site, but on new software, with a free host? before I go overboard advertising I need to know, I can just link this site too the new one, and use a code so that when someone clicks a link here, they end up on our new forum. Whats everyone think?

Just copy things you want saved to a word document and re-post it after the move.

well for one if forumotion crashed. we lose our site. permanently.

since they dont allow me to backup my stuff.
Our site cant be upgraded, moved, etc.

Hell if we had a rival site, they could have their members report us, and we would be shut down.

so we have choices.

https://www.phpbb.com/
this is the same as what we are using now. but it would be on a site owned by us.

Vbulletin. etc etc

The software isnt an issue we can change it any time. the hosting is my issue.

A cheap host is like 5-8 bucks a month, etc

WE could do that, and get a nice site.
or get a free host.

honestly i dont have a job at the moment Razz
But we could have ad spots on the site for people to advertise to earn us money, thus paying off our hosting.

ETC ETC
go onto the chat box and talk to me people.

So, for the other program, you'd have to pay to keep it! Maybe we should keep this one, jut incase, something happens?

The problem with updating this site is that it's not our own site; it's owned by forumotion. And if we move, this site won't be lost. However, if something does happen to forumortion and it crashes, our site will, too, and it's not backed up so we will lost everything.

I still think we should keep this website just in case. Untill everything is settled. Still keep it but clear it out.

I think the plan is to keep this site up, but also transfer to another better one.

Alright, from what I understand (talked to peter in foods class) is that the new site will be a large multiple ranging rp's. Which is fine, i'll join, but I don't think i'm going to leave here or be as active on the other site. I'd rather just stay and continue doing what i'm doing. I've just been on here so long (and helped finn make it all those years ago) that it would feel wrong to abandon it.

Sorry guys.

Ahhh Amy no! Agh guys, I don't think I could leave without Amy. This is going to be really difficult. You just had to make this difficult didn't you? But on one side, didn't Finn basically abandon us for other RPG's? Hmmmmmmm. I do have a question though; Peter, what makes you think Forumotion will crash? I mean, what if we just kept in touch by email, so if it does crash we can always decide to make a new one or not? And, I don't want to make you pay for a new site with no idea how it will turn out. What if no one joins, the site is hard. work with

I've seen this site grow (shrink) then grow again, since around 2010-2011. Not as long as you guys obviously. And I've just had a different standpoint on the matter (as in not doing all this Admin stuff). But if we have multiple rp things, wouldn't that be getting away from the whole "Maxximum ride" idea? IDK, i just started thinking about that. So i guess I'm not apposed, or totally for it as much now. I get that there will still be Max ride rps, though. So maybe a new site is a good idea...

And now it seems people are having second thoughts about it... This is confusing, now. A bit tricky...
